Cedar House Day Nursery opened its doors to children and families on 2nd September 2013.
Situated in our amazing woodland setting here at Ransom Wood it is just 10 minutes from the M1 and has easy access from several main routes in and out of Mansfield.
Cedar House is an OFSTED outstanding Nursery and can accommodate up to 40 children each day aged 3 months to 5 years. There is ample parking and a spacious, enclosed, secure garden and woodland play area to the rear of the property with access to the woods for walks and further exploration.
Husband and wife team Steve and Christine Doubtfire have owned Smarties Private Day Nursery on Nottingham Road, Mansfield since November 2006. Having both enjoyed careers in secondary and further education, Steve and Christine are committed to maintaining the best quality day care available, providing a high quality environment which supports the care and the educational development of the children. A family business, Smarties is a popular, over-subscribed nursery and the opening of Cedar House presents the opportunity to welcome more children into the Smarties family. Last inspected in November 2011, Smarties was awarded outstanding in every area of care and learning, endorsing the hard work, determination and commitment of the whole nursery team on a daily basis.

A poem about Cedar House nursery written by Alex and Laura Jones.
As you drive up the road, peeking out through the trees
Stands a lovely white house like you wouldn’t believe…….

The nursery staff had arranged a special visit by Nottinghamshire Fire Brigade so that the little ones could learn all about what it’s like to be a fireman. How exciting!
Love this place
We rent an office here and it’s just such a lovely place to drive into everyday
Still love to walk around. I used to live in the big house at the top of the drive, it was Oak House then and I nursed at Ransom Hospital , Byron Ward which was on the left side of Ransom Hall car park. Oak House used to be Sisters accommodation. I think the main chef lived upstairs when I lived there and just me downstairs mostly. I loved it but had to keep my kitchen door closed because of the squirrels. Loved looking down the drive out of my bedroom and lounge windows, beautiful in Autumn and when it snowed, I worked at Ransom Hospital until it closed in 1987. Wonder why Oak House was later named Ash House? Lovely dining at Forever Green in the grounds whilst I reminisce.
Absolutely spot on as regards setting up a virtual office. Really friendly and helpful reception staff, with onsite meeting rooms available if needed. Very pleased.
Great place for taking pets a walk, lovely cafe with meeting rooms.
A great place
Brilliant place, they have all sorts of businesses there. A cafe, hypnotherapy, hypnopuncture as well many others. Worth a drive up just to see what's there. Furthermore, it's in lovely surroundings.
Just go there and walk for miles! Beautiful views from strawberry hill too.
